It’s been another fantastic year of sport and here at Crazy Catch we have had some great fun training with some new partner clubs and athletes playing on some the biggest stages in sport from the World Cup in Brazil to the Commonwealth Games held in Manchester…
Here we share our best moments from 2014 and we look forward to some even bigger and better projects in 2015!!
1. We were delighted to be invited by Everton FC to film with their goalkeepers … take a look at the result which is some INSANE diving saves. We also attended and ran a Crazy Catch zone at the Neville Southall / PG10 training day. For football – Crazy Catch is the number 1 training aid!
2. Back in June we teamed up with GB and England Hockey goalkeeper Maddie Hinch for the video “Not Giving In”. Maddie had a great year winning Commonwealth silver and is also a finalist in the FIH Goalkeeper of the Year award … you can vote for Maddie here
3. We love SportFest – it’s all about fun, sport and families so we fit right in! Tickets for the 2015 event are now on sale so if you fancy a weekend at wonderful Wormsely being coached by the likes of John Barnes, Will Greenwood and Andrew Strauss then book now!
4. Cricket remains our most popular sport and this summer holidays we put the fun back into fielding with the help of Paul Nixon. Take a watch of some of our fab little games and drills that are great for sharpening your catching skills at home
5. How could we not include reference to the World Cup in Brazil – what an amazing tournament with some truly exceptional goalkeeping displays from some keepers who train with Crazy Catch namely Guillermo Ochoa and Keylor Navas who earned a big money move to Real Madrid… here he is working on his reactions back at Levante (Watch)
6. The ZEO Superleague final was so exciting this year as Manchester Thunder triumphed in the dying seconds over Surrey Storm to claim the title. For Crazy Catch it was the perfect final as both teams use the Ultimate Rebound Net!
7. Legendary 5 time world player of the year Jamie Dwyer coached with Crazy Catch during his visit to Loughborough University … if its good enough for the most famous hockey player on the planet, then it must be a great piece of kit! Jamie used the product in his forwards masterclass with Loughborough Students Hockey players.
8. Crazy Catch is becoming more and more popular in schools with pupils of all ages and abilities. We headed down to Millfield school to see how Crazy Catch is used to improve their athletes skills in a number of sports including Rugby, Tennis, Netball, Cricket, Hockey, Basketball and Fencing! Watch the video
9. Congratulations to catching champion Steffan Vass from Northampton. He won the u17’s category of the global Crazy Catch One Minute Challenge and trust me he is quick with a top score of over 70 catches in a minute!
10. Finally in our top 10 of 2014 is our own award. Crazy Catch picked up most innovative product at the Sports Trade Awards this year! Crazy Catch is available in four different sized models and we have a classic version for small ball sports like cricket and hockey then the double trouble version (with two INSANE sides) for big ball sports like netball and football.
Join team #CrazyCatch IN 2015 and get training with the number 1 training aid – the Ultimate Rebound Net, whatever your sport.
